High Roller

I haven't talked a lot about it in this blog, but I've been trying to budget.

Okay, a little. I mean, I'm less cavalier about buying stuff now.

I swear! Really!

(Justpleasedon'tlookatmygrocerystorebill.)

Anyway, I did the unthinkable today: I both bought my lunch, unusual in and of itself, and I BOUGHT A BOOK. At full price. (Okay, not--I had a coupon, and it was on sale at Barnes.)

But to buy a book--NEW--off the shelf, well, I felt pretty indulgent.

And no, I can't believe I'm getting excited about this, either.

There's a sense of accomplishment when you look back at a month of tracked finances...then you wince and realize you've been eatting out way too often. Want the excel spreadsheet I use?
